    8 lives on the list for processing Thanks to the sharing and contributions of our subscribers and facebook fans we managed to save 9 horses in total They arrived on Friday at lunchtime and were greeted by timber felling and chipping from the roadworks crew just outside our yards Damn it you cant plan a thing without a bit of chaos All horses have started to settle in And whilst a few still arent quite sure where they are or why there are those who already know where the feed shed is We now have 40 horses in care There are 5 more to come in that we know about and one of these requires extensive surgery Sadly 2 of the geldings in the recent intake were actually still colts and possibly even have retained testicles Not that it wouldve made any difference to us saving their lives but it will increase the costs we had anticipated for their care This saturday morning between 9 30 and 12 noon we have a volunteer induction session for anyone keen to get involved and help slog out the hard yards of feeding watering and poo shovelling Sounds exciting doesnt it If you

    Sir Percival and Sir Lancelot who we rescued last week We were told that he had been sent on the truck and that sadly we had missed the opportunity to save him But low and behold like the knightly steed he is he was found still up the back of the paddocks after the truck had gone It is likely he was wandering looking for his mates and was overlooked

    we called Panda exhibited signs of colic on Monday 4th March After a series of injections and treatment for what was believed to be a urinary tract infection he was still no better We shipped him down to Newcastle Equine Centre where further tests and treatment was carried out Sadly 2 days later we found he was suffering renal failure and made the very sad decision to put him to sleep Another two were brumby stallions from the Grafton area We were incredibly relieved to find that these boys had already been caught once or twice by the trappers so our job was made much easier We took them straight from the doggers truck caught and loaded them onto the float and transported directly to the vet where they were promptly gelded After several weeks and very limited handling these wonderful boys have been rehomed together The four TB mares we saved from slaughter in December were joined 4 weeks later by one of their mates who had been left at the knackery the entire time We were so lucky to have been given the opportunity to save Macey and thanks go to a couple of our supporters for paying the knackery fee and donating to get her some feed Her recovery has not been as positive as we would have liked So after having blood tests done on the 14th of March she was promptly rushed to Newcastle Equine Centre on the 15th This brave girl had been a lot sicker than she was letting on Nearly 3 weeks later she came home and is now looking fat and fabulous although a little woolly All the girls were preg tested in Feb and only Martha was found to be in foal On the 16th of April she delivered the

    size Print Email Rate this item 1 2 3 4 5 4 votes Pitch is a 6yo coloured gelding who has come to us via the knackery Sold through a sale yard in Northern NSW he and his family made it onto the doggers truck and ended up in Manilla on death row For whatever reason he was seen as a potential to rehome So he was advertised on facebook and members of the general public chipped in to pay his 990 fee from the knackery A new owner was nominated and he was transported to a trainer to commence work Upon commencement of work he showed some aggression towards the trainer and as a result all work was stopped and he was sent back to the knackery His fate would seem to have been sealed Fortunately for him one of our local supporters had the foresight to jump in and ask if we could help So here he is small steps and he is so far doing well Read 2410 times Last modified on Wednesday 14 October 2015 19 30 Tweet Published in Main Articles Jo Briggs Latest from Jo Briggs Ruby Jewell are off to their new home
